Julep Maven Boudoir Collection Review January 2014

Julep Maven BouDoir Collection January

When I saw the Julep Maven Boudoir Collection for January, I knew I had to get a box. I could not decide which box I wanted, so I decided to upgrade to the Ultimate Collection that included the Resort Collection add-on which is coming separately.

Julep Maven Essential Cuticle Oil – Retail Value $18

I already have this cuticle oil, but you really can never have enough!

Nail Buffers – Retail Value $4?

I think these were an extra item? I couldn’t find any info on them anywhere.

Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover – Retail Value $18

I tried this last night and it was really interesting. When I was pushing back my cuticles, the formula turned into this almost solid sticky form which scared me a split second because I thought it was my cuticle skin coming off!


Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops – Retail Value $14

I’ve been wanting to try these Quick Dry drops for ages now. I am thrilled to finally be able to have it in my collection. So far, it does it’s job pretty well, but I only tried it on the silk finish which tends to dry faster than the creme polishes.

Hope - Stark white satin

I am not a fan of my white Julep polishes because they tend to dry super slow. Since this is a satin finish, I am hoping it will dry faster, especially with the drops.

Farrah - Lilac silk

This color is so pretty on your nails! I am wearing it now and I cannot get over how much I love it!

Annemarie - Warm cocoa crème

This is not my favorite color. I am not the biggest fan of brown polish, but I am sure I can find some nail art I can attempt using this color.

Hannah - Sage crème

I like some green colors, and I think this could potentially be a nice Spring color, but again, it is not my favorite.

Mae - Soft lavender satin

I love Mae. I did a swatch of the color and I can’t wait to try it  out later on my nails.

Noelle - Sandy beach silk

The finish is what saved this color. It isn’t something I would ever normally wear, but because of the finish, it makes it interesting enough to try out.

Mona - Storm cloud grey crème

I love my grey colors. I wear a lot of grey clothing, makeup and polish and have a running joke that I live my life in greyscale so this is right up my alley.

Abigail - Light peony pink silk

This is another favorite. I am pairing it with Farrah and they make such a sweet romantic duo!

Margot - Old Hollywood gold shimmer

I can’t say enough good things about this color. I love the vibrant gold and shimmer. It really is very glamorous!

Thoughts: This is not my favorite collection and a part of me wishes I did not get the whole collection and instead opted for only certain colors, plus the nail treatments. I do look forward for receiving the Resort Collection which I am sure will make up for some of the shades that were not my style here. The colors I did like in the collection I ended up adoring once I saw them in person!
